Listen to Lizard Prom

Lizard Prom are a four piece alternative rock band from Te Matau-a-Maui/Hawkes Bay. They draw influence from a variety of genres including shoegaze, post-punk and doom. Previously named Queens of Beauty School, the band started mid-2014. During this period the band opened for Jakob and The Veils, as well as playing various local shows. After a hiatus in 2018, the band regrouped at the start of 2019, renaming as Lizard Prom. During 2019 they recorded and released their self titled debut EP, featuring the single Betty Goes to Hell. This track peaked at number 1 on Radio One. Continuing to play live regularly in their hometown of Hawkes Bay, Lizard Prom have built up a reputation as an exciting live act with chaotic energy, most recently opening for Beastwars on the Napier stop of their late 2019 tour. They are due to release their new EP, Unusual Pain in July 2021 and to embark on a small tour to support the release.
